Rubber Stamps & Colored Ink

Here's a little story about making some wedding shower invitations that I'm making for a shower that I'm hosting:


Rubber stamps, a color printer, and a little imagination goes a long way when it comes to making invitations.  I have so much fun with it and it's so much cheaper, that I think I will make my own invitations for the rest of my life.  Or until someone has an intervention with me.  {I feel like that's coming.  Someone is about to sit me down and have a talk- "Meg, honey, the homemade look is a little tired.  Let's hand this over to the professionals now."}


Until then, I'm going strong.  

I saw a wedding invitation on someone's fridge the other day and it said, "Eat, Drink, & Get Married."  I'm usually not into what I call cutesy sayings, but I went with this one.  My friend loves color and lots of them, so I went with different bold colors that I thought complimented each other nicely.


Then, I got the joy and high that comes with mailing a huge stack of mail.  And not just ordinary mail, but fun, green colored envelopes.  The high from mailing those few invitations has sent me into a high of writing and mailing thank you notes.  Because that's how mail rolls.

  2. Awesome invites. I'm with you on the stationery high. Everything's better when you write and send a letter--and so much more so with a bazillion invitations. Love it!
